I do spinning classes 3 times a week and I do swimming everyday for 2 hours

I'm going to look into swimming in my area. Thank you!

I do 3 - 4 days a week. I mix it up: Two mile walk with the dogs, Zumba, and swimming are my favorites. Anywhere between 45 and 60 minutes each time.

I exercise 5 to 6 days per week.

I do weightlifting 3 times weekly. I also run on most days of the week, either outdoors or on the gym's treadmill. In addition, I use the gym's stationary bike, elliptical machine, and stair mill.

I work out 5 days a week. I'm on the elliptical for an hour all 5 days. I'm on the recumbent bike 3 days a week, when I don't weight train. I also weight train two days a week, one of those days at the gym. Soon I'm also going to incorporate resistance training.

The choice is purely yours to make. Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you want to run the risk of dying early due to obesity-related illnesses because you wanted to avoid some loose skin?
  2. Do you want to enhance your qualify of life and be a normal-weight person, even if it means you'll have some loose skin?

If you back out of weight loss surgery because you're afraid you'll develop loose skin, you're possibly having surgery for the wrong reasons. Bariatric surgery is about reclaiming and/or enriching one's health, not about eye-candy aesthetics.

Sometimes loose skin is the trade-off for the chance to live to the fullest. Only you can decide if you wish to fight the battle or run away from it because you fear your skin may sag.

Also, be honest: do you truly like your obese body the way it looks today? If not, why are you so worried about the potential of some skin sag?

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
